Welcome to the 45th Annual Atmore Memorial

 

Part of the USSA Central Division

Northern Michigan University Mid America FIS Series

Spirit Mountain, Duluth, MN

December 30-January 1, 2022/23

 

     The Atmore Memorial is the premier FIS Slalom in the Central Division.  Over its 40-year history, the race has developed a reputation as a first class event and as a result every year draws racers from coast-to-coast – including multiple Olympians, US Ski Team and Team America members.  In addition, Spirit Mountain sits on the shore at the head of Lake Superior, and the resulting high relative humidity and cold January temperatures typically make for bulletproof snow, giving racers farther back in the pack virtually the same conditions as those in the draw.

The Atmore Story

The Atmore Memorial Trophy is named in memory of Dr. William Atmore and his son Mark Atmore.   Dr. Atmore was one of the original founders of the Duluth/Superior Alpine Club and also a past president.  He served for many years as a member of the National Ski Patrol and medical advisor to the Mont Du Lac Ski Patrol, and to the Central Division of the Western Region of the National Ski Patrol.  His devotion and commitment of energy to skiing were unexcelled to a point that it could only be understood and truly appreciated by another skier.  Mark represented the Duluth/Superior Alpine Club in regional and Divisional USSA races.  He received the first letter ever given for skiing at Marshall High School (then Cathedral) and was later to become the Hilltopper Ski Coach.  He later was a member of the Spirit Mtn Ski Patrol.  The dedication of this race to Dr. William Atmore and Mark is a tribute proudly presented by the Atmore family to ensure that their unselfish devotion to skiing and ski racing will always be remembered.
